Garden Picnic…


The allotment gardener and his friend, a woman from the flats, are outside in the garden eating their lunch.  Making the most of intermittent sunshine.

They are wrapped up in coats, scarves and hats.

I saw her come across the lawn with a basket covered with a white cloth, she went to the bench hidden behind a bush at the top of the lawn.

Then I saw him approach with two folding chairs which he set up a distance away facing the bench.  He took a magasine from his basket and started turning pages.

Odd I thought, sitting so far away from each other!

When I looked next she had joined him.  They had spread napkins over their knees and were eating their sandwiches.

Two old people, wrapped up against the wind, enjoying the garden in a rare ray of sunshine.


Bring on the summer!
